    This book is the first detailed description of the embryonic development of all important sturgeon species - from the egg, over the various larval stages to the grown up fish. Besides dealing with the typical issues of developmental biology: hormonal stimulation of oocyte maturation; development of the mature egg organisation and the role of the ucleus and the cytoplasm in this process; timing of the mitotic phases; changes in the cell cycle during the transition to gastrulation; morphometric movements during the gastrulation. Emphasis is also placed on fish breeding in aquaculture, with special recommendations and instructions for the artificial breeding of sturgeons.
